One of my favourite Boxing Day traditions is to watch the Doctor Who Christmas special. I usually spend Christmas with my extended family, and it was my uncle and cousin who originally inspired this tradition.

True to its name, the Christmas special is shown on Christmas Day in the UK (where it is made), but for Australia that equates to the wee hours of the morning on Boxing Day. The ABC shows it at that time, but I’m not that keen. I like to watch it in the evening, often during dinner while shushing all the other relatives in the room who aren’t interested.

You’d think I’d be eagerly anticipating it, but no. Almost very year I forget it’s on and then I see it in the TV guide or my family mentions it and then I really look forward to it.

Very happy with my most recent Christmas card effort.

After a few hours of designing and planning I had precut all the pieces, ready for assembly. I created a little production line at a Scrapbook Cottage (my local scrapbook shop) crop night. Overall it took me about 8 hours to make approximately 50 cards, not a bad effort if I do say so myself.

The card was inspired by the Teresa Collins Tinsel & Company collection. By the time I got around to making cards most of the line was sold out in my area, but I did manage to get the background paper for the cards. I had a moment of inspiration when I saw the burlap ribbon in Bed, Bath and Table on sale and using three contrasting papers with the ornament punch from Stampin Up completed the look.
